Here are some ways to identify whether the board is an Intel (R) Desktop board.
Get the AA number
Also, aa number can be obtained from the bios sometimes.
Use Board ID tool:
Once you identified the board, if it is the Intel® Desktop Board D945GC, then make sure that onboard audio is enabled in the bios.
Download the audio driver
Extract the executable file using winrar.
Try to install the driver manually.
1. Go to "Control Panel", "System", Hardware tab - "Device Manager", under Sound, video and game controllers, right-click High Definition Audio CODEC and select "Update Driver..."
2. Choose "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and choose "Next".
3. Check the box "Include this location in the search:" and browse to DISK1\WDM\WinXP folder from the driver package and choose "Next".
4. XP will now install the audio driver from the INF file.
Let us know how it goes.
All the best,
Ok ... no Intel board detected. That what I got from Board ID tool. But I did Belarc Advisor - this was the result.
In device manager there is no High Definition Audio CODEC. What should I do?
I have checked the specification update, i dont think this is an intel board, it can be an oem board like Gateway.
Even the bios string is not the same as the one in the document.
All the best,
thanks buddy for all the help. Can you guide me, on how to find the audio driver for the computer?? It is a Gateway computer.
